The '''Partnership for Clean Indoor Air''' (PCIA) was launched at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in September 2002 to address the increased environmental health risk faced three billion people who burn traditional biomass fuels indoors for cooking and heating. This voluntary Partnership brings together governments, public and private organizations, multilateral institutions, industry, and others to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices.

*'''February 28 -29, 2012: (Amsterdam)''' The first ISO International Workshop on Clean and Efficient Cook Stoves. The purpose of this conference will be to establish international rating standards for emissions from improved cookstoves. These rating standards will be used in the future to obtain Gold Standard accreditation, CDM certification and carbon credits for improved cook stove projects. There is no charge to attend. The workshop will be conducted in English with no translation available. [http://www.pciaonline.org/files/PCIA-Alliance-ANSI-International-Workshop.pdf More Information...]

The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA), which has now merged with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, was launched at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in September 2002 to address the increased environmental health risk faced three billion people who burn traditional biomass fuels indoors for cooking and heating. This voluntary Partnership brings together governments, public and private organizations, multilateral institutions, industry, and others to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices.

The mission of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air was to improve health, livelihood and quality of life by reducing exposure to air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use.

Between 2002 and 2012, 590 Partner organizations joined together through the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air to contribute their resources and expertise to reduce smoke exposure from cooking and heating practices in households around the world. This collaborative effort was focused on four essential elements of effective and sustainable household energy and health programs:

  • Meeting the needs of local communities for clean, efficient, affordable and safe cooking and heating options
  • Improving cooking technologies, fuels and practices for reducing indoor air pollution
  • Developing commercial markets for clean and efficient technologies and fuels
  • Monitoring and evaluating the health, social, economic and environmental impact of household energy interventions

As part of PCIA's integration with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, the resources that were produced over the past 10 years of the Partnership are still accessible on this website. However, the content will no longer be updated as of June 1, 2012. Groups who wish to join this international partnership are encouraged to become a member of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. If you were not a PCIA Partner, but would like to join the mailing list to receive communications about future Winrock International / U.S. EPA capacity building and technical assistance activities, please email moderator@cookstovesandindoorair.org.
